Forum: classic_tv Subject: Shoot the Works

There are now three TV episodes called, "Shoot the Works" at the Archive:

The saying, "Shoot the Works" means, "to do everything; to use everything; to bet all one's money"

The only show where the phrase actually had any relevance to the plot was in Boston Blackie, but still you could "shoot the works" and watch all three.
